    I use Traxxas connectors for all my rc stuff My hyperion duo 3 is setup for it and the 2x 3800 lipos are to replace my 2x 8.4v 4000mah nimh that I used in My Venom King of Shaves boat as well as my 2 Traxxas villians brushed and brushless... I had 2 sets about 2+ years and many many cycles and one pair gave out one of the cells burst... so I picked up the new traxxas lipos... also the 3800 were pretty cheap and I know they would fit easily I may get a pair of 7600 7.4v but they were alot more $...

    I got my shipment in on monday but Ive been to busy to Play LOL maybe sat I add some photos and get a cycle in...

    update !!!!

    ran the KOS on the 3800 lipos WOW I picked up about 10 mph !!!! run time was decent def longer than the NIMH and the power was smooth... esc and motor were hardly warm compared to a hot esc after running NIMH... Batterys were barely warm compared to the burning hot nimhs as well...

    gonna pick up another set of 3800s !!!

    I keep looking at the Traxxas lipos, but they are just too expensive when a guy can buy other brands of at least equivalent quality and ratings for much less. It is a little disappointing really, I would be much more loyal if the prices were a bit more reasonable. I am glad to hear that they are performing well though.

    Just curious as to how you would know about the quality of a Traxxas lipo if you've never owned one.

    Wow, I guess you got me on that one. Of course, my experience could only be limited to what I own.

    I know a couple of people who own them and have had the opportunity recently to handle them and run them in my truck. They have them on display at almost all of the hobby shops that I've been to recently.

    Sweet stuff, but you seem like a money waster. I just purchased a 6400mah lipo from Venom for 78.99 the same price as your 5000mah. Also tower isn't known for its good prices. I order from Amazon all the time with great results. Also, the sizing is great for my Rustler, it took a light amount of modification, but no cutting was needed.
